Brockport, NY – “Two 9/11s: Two Strategies, Two Futures” is the topic of the first American Democracy Project lecture at the State University of New York at Brockport Tuesday, September 12, in the Seymour Union Ballroom, at 7:30 pm.

September 11, 2006 is both the 5-year anniversary of the 9/11 events in the United States and the 100-year anniversary of the day that Gandhi formally committed to using only nonviolent resitance against the British. This event will reflect on the two different approaches— violent and nonviolent— to fighting terror in the 21st century, and our speakers will reflect upon the lessons of the past 100 years.

Guest speakers include Jack Duvall, director of the International Center for Nonviolent Conflict and Douglas Macgregor PhD, retired army colonel, military strategist and consultant.

Jack DuVall is president and founding director of the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict. He also was executive producer of the Emmy-nominated PBS television series A Force More Powerful, a three-hour documentary series, exploring one of the 20th century's most important but least-understood stories… how nonviolent power overcame oppression and authoritarian rule all over the world. The documentary was narrated by Ben Kingsley and it premiered on PBS in September 2000.

The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict is an independent, non-profit, educational foundation that develops and encourages the study and use of civilian-based, nonmilitary strategies to establish and defend human rights, democracy and justice worldwide.

Douglas A. Macgregor PhD is an independent defense and foreign policy consultant. He is also a retired Colonel who left the Army in 2004 after 28 years of service, most of which was spent in armor, mechanized infantry and armored cavalry formations.

In addition to writing several books on military affairs, Macgregor frequently appears on the News Hour with Jim Lehrer, CNN, NBC and Fox News as an analyst of on-going military operations in Iraq and military transformation. He also speaks to public and private groups on issues of leadership, technology and inspirational topics.

The event is sponsored by The American Democracy Project at SUNY Brockport and is free and open to the public.
